- Sources of Inspiration
- The Fine Print
- And Whatnot
Now that my pregnancy is (hopefully!) drawing to a close and I’m beginning to contemplate—gasp!—what I might wear when I’m no longer pregnant, it feels like it’s about time to start pulling together some of my thoughts on dressing during pregnancy. Starting Monday and over the next few weeks, I’ll be tackling a handful of topics near and dear to my heart (and thankfully relatively fresh in my memory), including, but not limited to:
- The “most valuable players” of my maternity wardrobe, both for work and for casual wear
- Highlights and strategies from each trimester
- Making trends work for the pregnant (and sometimes very pregnant!) body
- Great, sometimes hidden sources of maternity duds
- Strategies for building a maternity wardrobe (and stretching—sometimes literally!—your non-maternity clothes)
- Special occasion dressing while pregnant
- Maternity style inspiration from around the blogosphere
Like my series on dressing for new or temporary office jobs, I’m neither the first nor the last person to write about these issues. Consequently, my thoughts on these topics are unlikely to be exhaustive, and are almost assuredly shaped by the particular experiences of my body and this pregnancy, but I’ll do my best to try to distinguish between the idiosyncratic and the relatively universal. As usual, I’d love to hear your thoughts—pregnant, recently pregnant, hoping to someday be pregnant readers—on what issues you’d like to see addressed, or your favorite tips on any of these topics; just leave a comment, tweet @narrowtailoring or send me an e-mail at narrowlytailored (at) gmail (dot) com.
As I prepare to go on semi-maternity-leave from blogging, I’m also seeking guest bloggers for a few posts in the coming weeks. I have some ideas on themes, but topics are negotiable, and I’d love to feature your work here while I’m trying desperately to get some sleep and get our little one acclimated when she arrives. Again, if you’re interested, email, comment or tweet to let me know.
